Welcome to the web site for Silkworm (1987-2005).

Since the inception of this web page in - good heavens - 1997, I have never gone so long without posting at least some kind of an update. I know you've all been worried, but please. There's nothing to worry about. We're all healthy, and we're all very busy - much too busy to worry about anything at all. We have no worries! You know the guys who spend their days at the beach, riding the waves & being sporty with their brothers? and spending each night safe in the arms of yet another sweet, sweet lady? You how those guys, if you ask them if they have any worries, they say, "no worries?" We're like those guys.
All is well though. I am not kidding. You think I'm kidding, but I'm not. One of us had a baby, as I believe I've mentioned, and the baby is growing rapidly. It looks you in the eye! It's creepy, I know, but some of them do it. Right in the eye. Everyone but me has some new job or another. I'm in a relatively satisfying and accomodating position so I have not run off to greener pastures just yet.
None of that matters so much I suppose. What I'm really here to say is: thanks for checking in. We have the full intention of revamping this among-the-most-ancient-of-web pages sometime, oh, this year I'm sure, and I'm confident it'll happen.
No, that's not what I'm here to say. I'm here to say, Go to the damned shows weekend after next! If you don't know what the hell I'm talking about, click here. There will be some information on these shows. One's in Chicago on March 18th, one's in Minneapolis on March 19th. There are more coming up in April, but really please just click on the link and you will know all you need to know.
Thank you. More news sooner than last time.
Okay, sorry nothing's been updated for a while! Geez! There just isn't much going on. It's Wintertime, and we're all profoundly depressed; but that's hardly news, now, is it?
As a means to avoid them blues, we're playing a show at Logan Square Auditorium here in Chicago on Friday, January 7th. We may even have hot spiced cider on hand - that'll cheer you up. Even if you're on the ledge, ready to jump, hot spiced cider will pull you right back in. Hell, even if you're in the air! It's that good. So come to the show.
I'm trying to think of what all I can post here. I know you're all planning on going to the small flock of rock shows that's coming up in the next couple of weeks, so I won't mention them. Instead I'll mention this article where Andy says some stuff.
Damn, I can't think of much else. Can you believe we're still a rock band? It's been many, many years now. Come February I'll have been in this band for 15 years. That is terrible, terrible news.
From what I've heard, our new record, It'll Be Cool, is officially released today. Hot balls! I don't have all the information about it just yet, but I will soon, please believe me, I will. And we'll have it for sale, I bet you $1 we will.
There's other news, too, but I'm going to wait a few days before I post that news because I want to get some photographs developed. Otherwise you may not believe me. So - more news coming soon. We've got some shows coming up in November, too, so pay attention!
Has it been that long? I've been investing all my time - that's right, all of it - in writing the tour journals, so read those before you accuse any of us of being lazy, or worthless, or anything else.
I'm going to do a little cross-promotion here, hopefully no one will mind. For the past nearly three years, I've been editing a full-length documentary by Vickie Hunter (or Midgett-Hunter - Vickie is Tim's, you know, wife) and Heather Whinna (you may know her as a producer). The film is about Christian indie rock. It's called "Why Should the Devil Have All the Good Music?" You can read about the film here. It's premiering on August 22nd, and playing again on August 23rd, as part of the Chicago Underground Film Festival. You should all try to attend. That is all I will say about that.
We've got a record called "It'll Be Cool" that's coming out on September 14th. We've got some shows coming up after that, which I won't say much about until I know more about them. Babies will be born and weddings will be celebrated - but I'll talk about that when there's more to say. I just got back from a long weekend in gloriously sunny Seattle, and here in Chicago it's pouring rain and storm and wind, and I would like to be sleeping.
